Belfort on Silva's performance: 'Dana and the fans have spoken for me'


Do you intend to fight for the title on your comeback?

I’m working in this direction. My goal is to fight for the belt. That is what I’m waiting for and is all settled. The shoulder did not made things easy last time, but that’s exactly the reason of my motivation.

What did you think about Anderson and Demian’s fight, yesterday on UFC 112?

Well, I don’t have to say much about it. The audience and Dana White has already spoken for me. This is the way I’m feeling about it now.

On Forrest’s fight, Anderson teased, but won quickly. He did just the same yesterday and couldn’t submit it and the points were the decisive tools. Do you think he exaggerated?

We think just the same. This answer was given by Dana and everyone else.

I can't see Dana in a big hurry to give Silva another match anytime soon.

He might want to take a warm up fight first being that he's coming off what sounds to be a pretty bad injury.Excited about the matchup nonetheless. It would be a great way to pay back fans to put it on free tv, plus they'd get huge ratings so even more advertiser $$$.

If Belfort won't be ready until Sept-Oct then that gives time to give Sonnen a title shot in June/July and if Silva wins make him fight again in October(against Vitor).<br /><br />No rest for the wicked.

That's exactly what I was thinking saturday morning. No way Anderson is that stupid.

Put Chael in there soon, I don't want to wait to long. DW should push Silva at this point

I'd prefer Chael got first crack at Anderson. He brings a different style and mentality to the fight that would bring the most out of Silva.
